statistics, though, we did uncover yet another gap as we get better technologically, captain flaherty in preparation for our last meeting with the commission on status of women saw that the stats for db numbers, she felt they were a bit low. she discovered the reporting was for the fiscal year, she got with director giffin and looked at them for the calendar year and indeed they were low. i ordered an immediate audit for all of our numbers and we discovered when we changed over approximately 8,000 police reports hadn't been scanned in for purposes of comstat. that obviously is going to click up our year to date statistics but at least they will be accurate. a lot of these reports were closed cases, warrants, things like that, not necessary of any follow-up but not wanting to risk anything, captain flaherty did an audit of the 106 cases that hadn't been scanned in that would have been svu cases, all had been followed up on, one needed specifically to be assigned and that's been taken so we don't have anything that slipped through the cracks. however, you will notice when you see the final

security agency, general alexander, recently spoke at a large technology conference, and he said that with respect to communications from a good guy, which we obviously interpret as law-abiding americans and someone overseas, the head of the national security agency said, and i quote -- "requirements from the fisa court and the attorney general to minimize that to find procedures to protect the individual, the law-abiding americans' rights essentially mean, in the words of general alexander, nobody else can see it unless there is a crime that's been committed. so if people hear that answer to my colleague's question, which frankly general alexander responded to directly, they pretty much say that's what they were hoping to hear, that nobody is going to get access to their communications unless a crime has been committed. the only problem, i would say to my friend, is nor udall and i have found out that's not true. it's simply not true. the privacy protections provided by this minimization approach are not as strong as general alexander made them out to be, and senator udall and i wrot
